2018/06/19 White House Report
The report, titled How China’s Economic Aggression Threatens the Technologies and Intellectual Property of the United States attribued China's rapid economic growth to be "in significant part through aggressive acts, policies, and practices that fall outside of global norms and rules." It also concludes that "China’s economic aggression now threatens not only the U.S. economy but also the global economy as a whole." In particular, the report considered recruitment of science, technology, business, and finance talent as part of China's inappropriate acquisition of U.S. technologies and intellectual properties from America’s national security innovation base.
2018/06/06 Senate Subcommittee Hearing
The Subcommittee on Border Security and Immigration of the Senate Committee on the Judiciary held a hearing originally titled “A Thousand Talents: China’s Campaign to Infiltrate and Exploit U.S. Academia.” It was later retitled "Student Visa Integrity: Protecting Educational Opportunity and National Security."
Two panels of witnesses appeared in the hearing. The first panel included four officials from the federal government: Director of National Security, Department of Homeland Security, FBI, and the State Department. The second panel included three representatives from Seyfarth Shaw LLP, Texas A&M University, and the Association of International Educators respectively.
Senator Dick Durbin of Illinois, the ranking Democrat on the Senate Judiciary Committee’s Subcommittee on Border Security and Immigration, sought to invite Representative Judy Chu, of California, the chair of the Congressional Asian Pacific American Caucus, to testify at Wednesday’s subcommittee hearing. Representative Chu’s office said Durbin’s request was declined by the committee chair, Senator John Cornyn of Texas, a Republican.
